Traveling has been such a fun and amazing perk of my career along with meeting so many amazing couples and people! Traveling to Chicago I didn't really know what to expect from the city but after being there I can say its one of my absolute favorites! This couple was so incredible amazing even inviting me into their home. When I arrived Nina and their adorable little pup greeted me along with the cutest welcome sign and beautifully decorated suit. I truly felt like I was at a hotel. Having the extra time with this couple has added only more to the relationship and I cannot wait to capture their big day next year! Thank you again guys for the hospitality and choosing me to capture these amazing moments in your life!

Where to even begin? Chicago was simply amazing and I can not wait to go back! Shooting in Lincoln Park was stunning and so was this couple! We laughed and had a great time. Advice would be for those who have never been, just know parking isn't easy, lol! So excited to photograph this couples Planterra wedding this coming year!
The University of Michigan not only is a grand school, they offer wedding venues and has one of my favorite engagement session locations! Working with this couple and getting to know them was a pleasure, getting to photograph them was even better! This couples good taste and style shines almost as much as the love they have for one another. Having timeless and in love couples makes my job what it is and I am so Excited for this couples 2019 wedding at The Colony Club Detroit .
This location Is one of my favorites in Detroit. Shooting at The Gross Pointe War Memorial is a dream and it never disappoints. When this couple contacted me, (after being referred by one of my past brides) I knew they were going to be so fun to work with! Shooting engagement sessions are not only one of my favorites, they are one of the most important sessions to shoot before the couples big day! Engagement sessions help us to get to know each other and build a relationship beyond client and professional. Over the years most of my clients have become long term clients and even friends. Thank you to this couple for choosing me to shoot their winter wedding at The Rooster tail Detroit this coming year!

Winter can be cold but oh so beautiful! Enjoy a little glimpse into a downtown Detroit winter Session! When the trees are with out leaves, what better than a beautiful city scape!
This couple was not only fun and so in love but they were super stylish! I love so much when my clients dress up and make the day more than just photos. From the moment we chatted I knew this couple would be fantastic to work with and I am so excited to capture their big day next year!
I love when my clients bring who they are to their sessions. This couple loves their dog and as fur baby parents wanted to incorporate him into their session, isn't he the cutest! As we walked into the park I realized this was not only a pretty park but the park where they were engaged, ahh love that! We made sure we sat on the same bench where it all took place and had some great laughs reminiscing about that night they shared together. Between the cute pup and awesome couple this session was a perfect success! Thanks guys, cannot wait to photograph your big day next wedding season!
Wow, I loved this session!! The snow and christmas lights made for some extra magical details, don't you think!? This couple was fun, cute and so sweet! With it being the day before the first big snow storm the temps were pretty chilly and the winds were coming in pretty quickly, but they hung in there! Heart Plaza in downtown Detroit was a perfect place to start our session, as we got a colder we moved towards the library. Taking a break from the cold we were able to get some different shots inside and then back out to the DIA, which is one of my favorite places!! The white marble of the DIA building is almost as magical as the snowy grounds! This ranks up there with my fav's!! I can not wait to photograph their beautiful big day this next season!!
This location and couple could not have been any better! I had a blast with these two, and even though it was so freezing cold that I literally wore snow gear, it's a favorite to date! The couple were such troopers! Gina was a bridesmaid in another wedding I did few years ago, so when she called to book me I was already excited. Now after their session, I am even more so! Thank you guys for a great time - you rocked! I can not wait to photograph your big day next year!!
Oh my, how stunning is this bride-to-be!? Her fiance isn't too shabby either! The temps were so cold this day and we even had a few flurries, but not even that was going to stop this couple from doing their engagement session! From the location to the outfits, everything was perfect! Thank you guys for sticking it out through the snow and cold! Can not wait for your wedding next season!!
Back in 2009, mutual friends kept suggesting that Ashley and Billy should date each other, and boy are we glad they did! They couldn’t be more perfect for each other! I’m so glad they chose to have a unique session that incorporated their love for Detroit sports. Ashley and Billy were so cute playing with each other down by Comerica Park and Ford Field! We finished the session on a romantic note up on a rooftop (not far from where Billy proposed to Ashley this summer) with beautiful downtown Detroit as the backdrop. I cannot wait to party with their family and friends next fall at their wedding!
